Cholla are native to northern Mexico and the Southwestern United States.
Cholla are known for their barbed spines that tenaciously attach to skin, fur, and clothing.
Stands of cholla are called ‘chollas gardens’ or ‘cholla forests’. Individuals within these colonies often exhibit the same DNA as they were formerly tubercles of an original plant.
Don’t confuse Cholla with Chola….but either one will stick ya! ††† en theos ††† jim
